Even if you’re just a little bit interested in soccer than you should take the trip to the Nou Camp stadium and visit the museum of the FC Barcelona! You see a lot of their cups and medals and photos of victory, history of the club (with all the sports they do, not only soccer but also FC Barcelona basket ball, rugby etc), the famous players, the boots and jersey of the legendary Bernd Schuster and Diego Maradona for example. What I really liked fro FC Barcelona was the old soccer memorabilia - an old ticket booth, the dressing room, a sports pub, old soccer magazines, board games, balls and other equipment etc. The best of all is of course the view from the president’s seat in the stadium. It is huge (I mean the stadium!) and has an exciting atmosphere even with nobody but a few visitors around. It gives you the shivers thinking about 100,000 FC Barcelona supports singing and cheering and just 22 guys fighting on the pitch. You get back to reality in the huge shop with everything from soccer boots, pens, cups, ashtrays, mouse pads and Barca crisps…

Go around the museum and the stadium. I'll do the tour again next time I'm there to relive the memories of 26.05.99, a famous night for United.
The museum offers the chance to really get to know the stadium by taking a guided tour through the installations, which takes visitors into the opposition changing rooms, down the tunnel and onto the pitch area. You can see the new dugouts and look out across the magnificent stadium. The alter, the TV studio, the press rooms and the directors area virtually complete the tour, with the one final surprise of a chance to enjoy a panoramic view of all FC Barcelona facilities. Don't forget to bring your camera!

Soccer (European football) is, without any doubt, the most important sport in Spain and in Barcelona, so it's natural to visit the spectacular Camp Nou Stadium and the Museum of 1 of the greatest European soccer teams of all times, Barça.
Here you can see many trophies exposed and the football memorabilia, visit the small art gallery and the pitch itself...

As a football fan the Nou Camp was high on my list of things to do. It is a self tour of the stadium so you can take as long as you like. You get to go into the dressing room, press box and through the tunnel onto the touchline but not the pitch. you also get to go and sit in the stand on various tiers so you get different views of the pitch. Well worth the €11 entrance and the walk from the metro station.
My husband wanted to go here so we booked our tickets online for €10 and got the metro to Collblanc and then ask someone in the street for directions. It was very easy to find but a 20 minute walk to get to the right entrance number (9).
There is a big shop with loads of souvenirs and a cafe.
The tour was unguided which was good as you just went round on your own through a mapped out route and could take pictures and take your time. The Museum is at the end and had loads of old antique fusball tables and memorabilia as well as history and trophies.
If you are a football fan you'l enjoy it as the stadium is huge but other than that there is nothing much in the area so we just got the metro back to the city centre.
Camp Nou Stadium, (or Nou Camp) has been the home-base for one of the world´s greatest foot-ball teams, FC Barcelona, since its construction in 1957. If you want to add sports to your experiences in Barcelona, go to Camp Neu and enjoy world-players as Thierry Henry and Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, better known as Ronaldinho.
As a teaser, check out the wonderful sequence on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNi7-i-0gNw&feature=related. Of course, the pulse is even more intense on spot. Camp Nou is (in Mars 2008) the largest stadium in Europe, with its capacity to house an audience of more than 98,700 people.
I was there on a match in the Spanish League, and though the match winner was pre-destined (Barca!), all the fans were there anyway, cheering and supporting their team. So, buy un bocadillo de jamon (every footballers snack), or bring your own (for inspiration check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaMKASwG4-w) and join the game!

Camp Nou is home to one of the world's most famous football clubs, Barcelona. The stadium is the largest in Europe with a capacity of 100,000 spectators. It is the only stadium to have been awarded five stars by UEFA. The Stadium tour gives access to the pitchside, player dugout, director's box, commentry box, dressing rooms (bit dissapointing to be honest), press room and club mueseum.
Anyone interested in football must go to Camp Nou before it is remodelled (starting next year I think)
I was so excited that i had the oppertunity to go to Nou Camp Stadium, it was definately a must see, being a fan of football.
So when i arrived, i was going to go for nothing less than the 'pack tour & experienca virtual' which allowed you to see everything. It cost 16 Euros per adult and was well worth it.
I started off the tour by going to the players lockers (quite disapointed to be fair, suprised that my school locker room were better than theres) not what you expect for world class players! Then, from here to a place that looked like a small pray area (guessing where the players pray before the game) then out to the football pitch, wow, it was huge! It looked a bit dated and the seats were faded, so not as grand as i thought. We went back inside to see where they interview (sky i think) then to the conference lounge, players lounge, to see the trophies, then back to the top of the stadium, where you could get a better feel of how big it really is!
Transport is easy, its not in the centre of Barcelona, but you can easily get a taxi and just state 'Nou Camp' it's not that easy to get a taxi from the stadium though, so maybe arrange a time to be picked back up.
The Barcelona complex is very extensive. You can tour the main stadium including the museum and gallery at your own pace just following the taped walkway.
Not to be missed are the comic photos in the gallery. They will make you smile!
The press box high up in the stands gives a wonderful view if you have a head for heights.
Camp Nou, home of FC Barcelona is one of the few FIFA 5 star rated stadium. It is also one of the biggest (if not the biggest?) football stadiums in Europe. With capacity of close to 100,000 spectators it is a truly magnificent sight.
Within the complex there are several things to do: visit the museum, do a tour of the stadium and facilities itself and shop at the fanshop.
The stadium and museum is open daily; museum open from 10am to 10pm on Monday-Saturday while on Sunday it's open until 3pm.
Keep in mind that the stadium tour is not available on big matchday (like when they play home in the European Champions League).
Entry to museum cost Eur 7.5 for adults and the tour & museum cost Eur 11.5 for adults.
